EA and Bioware’s anticipated release of Anthem is live now for early access players (those who have Origin Access and EA Access). As such, there is much players want to know about the game. This includes how to join and invite players in Anthem. This Anthem Invite Friends guide lets you know all you need to know about inviting and joining friends online.

You will only be able to join and invite friends games of Anthem after you have completed the single-player only prologue. You won’t be able to play Anthem with your friends until you have completed the prologue. While this might be annoying, it does make sense, as the prologue acts as something of a tutorial for new players.

Upon completing the single-player prologue mission you will find yourself able to visit Fort Tarsis for the first time. You will be able to invite and join friends in Anthem once you reach this stage of the game.

When you are in Fort Tarsis for the first time you will be able to invite and join players in Anthem. Inviting friends in Anthem is a simple process, too. Simply enter the pause screen and locate the Social menu. On the Social menu, you can both invite players and join other friends that are playing Anthem at the same time as you. After choosing who to invite, you will need to wait for them to see your invite and join you.

As long as your friends also own a copy of Anthem, they can join your game whenever you send an invite. Bear in mind, however, that you can only have a maximum squad size of four players at any one time. No five-player co-op for anyone, unfortunately.
